Rugby great Jonah Lomu, 34, is to join French third division side Marseille Vitrolles. And Lomu hopes that, together with fellow new boys Alain Hyardet, Isitolo Maka, Julian Vulakoro and David Gerard, he can help turn Marseille into a force to be reckoned with. “Marseille is the second city in France,” Lomu said. “It should have a great rugby club. Now the club is giving itself means to fulfil their ambitions.” Out of the game for over a year, Lomu said he is looking forward to passing on his knowledge of the game to the club’s young players. Many believed that Lomu, who has 63 caps for New Zealand, had retired in 2007, but he claims that thought never crossed his mind. “Everyone thought that I had stopped my career, but it was a mistake. “I always feel the need to play and only I will decide when it will be the end.”
